Consider the following proportion:
$$\displaystyle{\frac{{{36}}}{{{12}}}}={\frac{{{72}}}{{{24}}}}$$
The objective is to write the given proportion in the form of a ratio.
If an equation showing the equality of two ratios, then the ratios are called as a proportion.
For example: $$\displaystyle{x}\div{y}={m}\div{n}$$ or $$\displaystyle{\frac{{{x}}}{{{y}}}}={\frac{{{m}}}{{{n}}}}$$
To write the proportion as a ratio, convert both the fractions in the form of a ratio, $$\displaystyle{A}\div{B}$$, without reducing the fractions to their lowest terms.
The conversion of $$\displaystyle{\frac{{{36}}}{{{12}}}}={\frac{{{72}}}{{{24}}}}$$ into a ratio is,
$$\displaystyle{36}\div{12}={72}\div{24}$$
Therefore, the proportion in the form of a ratio is $$\displaystyle{36}\div{12}={72}\div{24}$$.
